doc: typeset short command-line options as literal
It was common in our documentation to surround short option names with forward quotes, which renders as italic in HTML. Instead, use backquotes which renders as monospace. This is one more step toward conformance to Documentation/CodingGuidelines. This was obtained with: perl -pi -e "s/'(-[a-z])'/\`\$1\`/g" *.txt Signed-off-by: Matthieu Moy <Matthieu.Moy@imag.fr> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
